I had a lovely opportunity to make this for my friend E’s son. He is crazy about Spiderman. She called up the other day and checked with me if I could make one Spiderman cake for her. Now human modelling is not easy for me. I had a little apprehension when agreeing to her. But I thought, unless I take up the challenge, I will not succeed and here is my kind of healthy 🙂 Spiderman on a chocolate sponge cake!!
I remember Stan Lee’s character being my favourite too when I was in school. I watched this cartoon during weekends and sang along as it started and finished. Believe me, when I started modelling the figure,I started singing and searched the net for the lost words…..
Spiderman, Spiderman, Does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, Catches thieves just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Spiderman. Is he strong? Listen bud— He's got radioactive blood. Can he swing from a thread? Take a look overhead. Hey there! There goes the Spiderman. In the chill of the night, At the scene of the crime, Like a streak of light, He arrives just in time! Spiderman, Spiderman, Friendly neighborhood Spiderman. Wealth and fame, he's ignored— Action is his reward. To him, Life is a great big bang-up— Wherever there's a hang-up, You'll find the Spiderman!
Spiderman’s creators gave him super strength and agility, the ability to cling to most surfaces, shoot spider-webs using devices of his own invention which he called “web-shooters”, and react to danger quickly with his “spider-sense”, enabling him to combat his foes. I used to in awe for him!! Loved him so much. Now a mum of 12 year old, have forgotten when I outgrew the craze for this man.
Ah! for the childhood and all the fun and crazes I had:)
Did you have any fancies and crazes like I had? Do let me know.
As I decorated this cake, all these memories flooded my mind. I used sugarpaste for modelling the spiderman and black edible ink for drawing the lines on his body. I used the red-blue and white combination of sugarpaste.
